Game: Miami Heat at New York Knicks Apr 15 2012 1:05PM
Prediction: Miami Heat
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: PLAY Miami -3. Believe it or not, the Knicks are the popular pick here if you go by most trends or angles as a home underdog. Carmelo Anthony at MSG against old friend LeBron James seems like a good spot for New York to make a statement and pull the upset, but the Heat are simply the better team and would have to like a signature win. Miami's last couple games against the Eastern Conference's top teams - Boston and Chicago - haven't gone well for the South beach Big 3. It is time for a big win over a less talented team. MIAMI is 11-2 ATS in road games after allowing 85 points or less over the last 2 seasons. And MIAMI is 3-1 against the spread versus NEW YORK at MSG over the last 3 seasons. The Heat love playing in the Big Apple. And this is a small number you rarely get with Miami. Carmelo isn't good enough on his own to keep this within the number. Play Miami -3.
